These adorable Cheesy Cornbread Pupcakes are meant for man's best friend! Made with a handful of simple ingredients, you could frost them with a dollop of cottage cheese or leave them plain for a simple snack.
  • 1 box (8.5 oz) corn muffin mix (I used Jiffy)
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup milk (I used skim)
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • (If Frosting...)
  • Cottage Cheese
  • Miniature bones or treats
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place 12 silicone cupcake molds onto a baking sheet or lightly spray a 12-cavity muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the corn muffin mix, brown sugar, egg, milk and cheese with a spoon and stir until a soft batter has formed.
  3. Pour the mixture evenly among the baking cups, filling about ¾ths of the way full. Bake for approx. 13-15 minutes or until the tops are domed and golden and a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool the pupcakes completely.
  4. If frosting, top with a Tablespoon or so of prepared cottage cheese and garnish with a dog treat. Serve frosted cupcakes immediately. Unfrosted cupcakes will last at room temperature in an airtight container for about 4-5 days.
